The Department is pleased to congratulate Paul Goeringer, Research Associate and Extension Legal Specialist, as he is honored by the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources for outstanding service. Paul was presented with the Non-Tenure-Track Faculty Award during the AGNR Convocation & Awards ceremony on May 5th.

Paul Goeringer has established himself as a leader of the Agricultural Law Education Initiative, a partnership between the College of AGNR, the University of Maryland Carey School of Law and University of Maryland Eastern Shore established in January of 2013. Since that time, Paul has helped to fill a major void of legal outreach that previously existed in Maryland by traveling to countless meetings to make presentations or provide legal counsel and advice to producers at events across the state. Paul has authored more than 100 educational articles covering a host of legal issues important to Maryland’s agricultural community. He also played a major role in carrying on the substantial and well-received risk management outreach program left short-handed by a faculty member’s retirement. Paul provided continuity for the program and was able to adapt it to address new issues raised by the passage of the 2014 Farm Bill.
